BBC Breakfast host Dan Walker took to Twitter this morning after a co-star pointed out an amusing blunder. The subtitles on the show mistook what BBC correspondent Dan Johnson had said during an outdoors segment on the show.

He was on location in Shropshire visiting a campsite which had been allowed to open up for the first time, as coronavirus restrictions begin to lift.

Dan was filming as holiday makers enjoyed an early morning swim following their first night under canvas.

An employee offered the reporter a pair of swimming trunks so he could go for a dip in the pool.

As the reporter replied, the error occurred.

“We have some spare trunks if you want to go in,” the worker said.

“I’ll take you up on the offer of drugs if I can go in the hot tub,” the subtitles reported Dan to have said.

They mistook the word “trunks” for “drugs” in an amusing mishap.

Unaware of the error, Dan in the studio said: “My recommendation would be that if they are lost property trunks, don’t go anywhere near them.”

Shortly after the segment aired, business correspondent Nina Warhurst tweeted about the incident.

“Honestly you take *one* day for a late start & @DanJohnsonNews bagsies this OB [outside broadcast],” she wrote.

The post included a screenshot which captured the subtitles blunder.

Sharing the tweet with his own 707,700 followers, the Football Focus host remarked: “I was sure @DanJohnsonNews said TRUNKS!!! #SubtitleCarnage.”

Many took to the comments section of the post to share their thoughts.

“I will need some inducement to get in the pool but didn’t necessarily have that in mind,” Dan Johnson amusingly replied.

“Subtitles never lie* (are wrong quite often),” Nina quipped.

“Love the subtitles going rogue,” another social media user remarked.

“We love watching the rogue subtitles for the weather. This one was particularly good,” a third said, adding a picture of a weather report.

The subtitles read: “Cloudy, scope for Miss Dennis and bullfrog developing with time…”

The reporter later shared Dan’s tweet on his own page and added a blushing emoji.

BBC Breakfast continues tomorrow at 6am on BBC One.
